and consistency of the neighborhood or the changes in the better street plans that are contemplated for those better neighborhoods. this sign, i don't know why we need to create a blanket permission on the planning department and planning commission would advocate that ability to scrutinize each of these signs. downtown san francisco, city bank has been there for a long time. this sign is very different and very loud from the feeling you have along california street and the financial district. why would we want to give up the ability to scrutinize that in a permitting process. here is another example. what used to be holiday in in chinatown, i took a picture of it at night. it's a beautiful pedestrian bridge. it has a lot of detail on it. it's been botched by that hilton sign. again, as the rules are now contemplated would grandfather that sign. in other words we need to opportunity to reel in branding that is at odds with the character of our neighborhoods. i would like to also point out that san francisco beautiful helped pass prop g. we had voter approval but no enforcement on it

several meeting with heritage and we had clarifying language. it was never our intent to change that charter required procedure. the original ordinance specified that exemptions that are not noticed would only have 20 days to appeal, which isn't enough time. i agree and we introduced an amendment specifying that the appeal period will begin after notice for a public hearing with a posting on the planning department website of the determination. there is also a provision in the ordinance that would allow for a consolidated notice for large rezonings. we are already getting notice and it would be unreasonable to require an additional separate c-e-q-a notice. and we had provide that had that would apply to any area plans of five acres or more. we changed that to 20 acres or more so we narrowed the scope. i also understand that planning staff is recommending that the deadline to appeal be extended from 20 days to 30 days after that first entitlement and i agree with that change. and i do intend to amend the legislation assuming that the commission recommends it, to extend the appeal peri

changes that have been proposed are things that have been brought up over the years and we want to just get them down on this piece of paper so that people will know about them in the future. one of the problems initially in developing this thing was that they would have these meetings. the letter would come out, it would go on the plan. then it would be reviewed by the plan reviewer. the plan reviewer -- i don't know, that doesn't really make -- doesn't really agree with that outcome. that causes a major problem because it's already -- the client is commit today that design at that point and based on the letter, and then to have it re-looked at causes a lot of problems. so, we put some wording in here that the plan reviewer should honor that letter because it's already -- supervisors has gone through it and that's been in there for awhile. what we added is the additional time the field inspector goes out, closes the job, looks at the job, and he may not agree with the letter. that is even a bigger problem because the project is already designed, already being built. but language this t

changes to our proposal and we added a supports court and a request for more parking. which we went ahead and are requesting two to 1 parking 68. i grew with the neighborhoods and it's skater of public transportation i hope you'll support this request. we found people who like family sized homes are welcome in this area. we would like the endorsements to win over a lot of people's support. there is opposition to any feasible development and the fact is when i bought this property we knew that was the case and we've made every effort to reach out. we've approached the neighborhoods with the suggestion as a larger part of the agreement we want to provide pedestrian street lighting and also traffic coming issues like installing mirrors to help benefit everyone in the immediate neighborhood. we've had two separate meetings but today we've had no interest in some collaboration but i remain open. such perception of all the neighbors that we have spoken to privately that have expressed their opinion and there are a number of unfounded resumes about our project wild to dispel. first, as you

being asked to say change the findings and that's substantial. if any public addition is making a decision where you first have to adopt findings about the decision that you're making. and >> i don't know of any ail notice requirement. in our experience with p u c projects we adopt the projects when we take a subsequent action. the notice for that is the notice for the commission meeting the findings are embedded in our resolution which is posted in the library. and there's to my knowledge there's no additional requirement for the department to notify so i don't see with the commission acts i don't see that they didn't follow their protocols. >> the other question is what does this have to do with the action we need to take today? >> we've been working with the developer and the port to look at what options that their presenting so we make sure that we protect our infrastructure and so some of the scenarios that they brought forward, you know, we were addressing some of the concerns and so it's sort of a catch-22. they don't design exactly what they want it's sort of still unknown

. here is a copy for the clerk as well. and, so, it's merely changing -- striking out tier b and putting back a for the affordable housing requirement. so, that is the one amendment that i want to introduce today. and i want to give a special shout out to angelica cabanda, fernando and [speaker not understood] who actually worked with us and brought this idea to us and we were able to run the numbers and get some consensus throughout the community on this. mr. cory teague. >> just want to be clear. the amendment last week was to increase the residential impact fee tier up to tier 2 or essentially remove the reference to tier 1 which would revert it back to tier 2 and decrease the affordability from tier b to tier a. i want to -- yeah, i want to clarify. i think you're saying -- >> tier c. >> -- is to move back to tier b where its was originally, or are you wanting to go higher? tier b is what was originally exposed in the western soma plan with the residential impact fees bound to tier 1. >> okay. >> so, i'm not sure -- >> thank you for that clarification. >> i wasn't sure if you were po

studs and also 20 percent ungrade for ada access believe. this permit does not change the use, there is a subsequent permit that was issued on march fourth and that is to remodel an existing retail space within the existing mixed used tenant building and for any retail establishment that is on appeal. that is the permit that creates oska. if the concerns over the establishment of oska, then the ax action has no bearing on tha. we found this is not a formula retail use. when the change of use or when the tenant improvement permit was issued by the planning department and issued in march fourth, they the applicant submitted a formula use affidavit which stated that they only have 8 operating. we have also separately requested materials from them, which show that they only have eight operating and tried to clear everything that i can on the internet to try to find if they have more than eleven or more establishments in the u.s. and they did not. and so, for that reason, we found that they are not from retail use and the argument is that they have internet stores, and that does no

others had every intention to cancel or change the format of the planned discussion of the golden gate to be held at the common wealth club, any e-mails were instantly deletes not because of the deep commitment to the record retention policy, but because ginsberg knows that the sunshine law requires disclosures he is not stupid. had it been true that the destruction was implementing the policy and this should have been stated to mr. wooding at the outset. the disclosure that there were once e-mails but they were indeed destroyed according to regulations would have led to the next requirement in the sunshine ordinance which is to assist in referring him to someone who could help him with his records request. miss gong should have referred him to the department of technology did recovering the deleted e-mails since her technology staff could not help. let us not kid ourselves mr. ginsberg attempted a cover up of an ill advised attempt to influence the private entity to have a open panel discussion about the development in the famous park and wanted to use his position to exert power

building changing from glass to exterior wall. it's a change. the critical issues even though these are dramatically different materials, the critical issues that they still have certain aspects in common. one is that since the days of the competition we've always envisioned the transit center, even those it a very light building, it touches the ground very lightly and we felt the glass did that and metal does that equally well. the other thing that is very important that this is going to be the centerpiece of an entirely new neighborhood in san francisco. it has to be a great neighbor, it has to be a welcoming civilized humane presence and a building you want to live in and the wall does it equally. will : what you are seeing today, even though there are a number of the options, all of them will be what you will see today which has no discernable or dangerous scheduling impact on the work at hand. the construction documents are due may 31st, that will be the target we hit. the system is a design build system. that design build package is going to be delayed a little bit because of
